Facebook can only be used in secret mode


Thread starter
Jan 31, 2020
I have Samsung A53 5G Android 13.

I can access Facebook on the regular Samsung browser and scroll the page up or down, but that's pretty much it. If I click on anything... screen dims (if it does anything at all) till I hit back button then it brightens again.

I've x out the page and bring it back up... same issue, I've restarted phone... no change. I've even did that turning airplane mode on and off thing... no change.

Curiosity got to me and I tried Facebook in secret mode... it WORKED!!! everything so far functions as it should in secret mode. How do I get Facebook to function properly on the regular Samsung browser out of secret mode?

What caused this and how do I fix it?

Thanks in advance
